Block Party

Saturday, August 30, 2014  In between responses to "odor of gas" calls today, a crew took an engine to Glen Arbor Rd for their block party. Kids and adults both toured the truck, tried the hose and received helmets, fire prevention material, and doo-dads. Fire Lt Jack Welsh made sure everyone left happy. Thanks to those residents for inviting us (5 photos)



Odor of Gas - a lot!

Saturday, August 30, 2014  Haverford Township had dozens of calls (you probably heard the house and truck sirens), 5 or 6 were in the Llanerch local. All were checked with meters and no problems found in the houses.

The PECO Energy Company has received hundreds of calls Saturday from residents in Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties about a gas odor in the area.

More than 900 separate calls were placed to PECO between late morning and 9:30 p.m., according to officials for the energy company.

Workers with the utility company and firefighters responded to the area, but neither crew has detected gas -- indicating there are no leaks, according to authorities.

There may be a problem with their "system odorizers," which is a piece of equipment that puts a smell into the naturally odorless gas, according to information PECO provided Montgomery County officials.

It is unclear why residents are detecting the scent across such a large region, PECO officials said.

The investigation is continuing and authorities urge PECO customers to call 1-800-841-4141 if they smell gas.

Big Success

Tuesday, July 22, 2014  LETTER FROM THE RED CROSS:

Thanks for hosting a tremendous first American Red Cross blood drive!

The goal for the day was to have 20 pints of blood donated and the final results were the following:


45 people signed up in advance,

31 people actually registered to give blood &

31 pints of blood were donated!

155% goal achievement! OUTSTANDING!!!


Since each pint donated can benefit as many as three patients, approximately 93 local area patients may benefit from the generosity of the donors that gave blood at Llanerch Fire Company on Tuesday, July 22, 2014. Please extend our sincere thanks to everyone who supported, recruited, volunteered and for use of the space. We are greatly appreciative of your efforts, especially since we just went on a media appeal due to the blood shortage in our region.

If you need anything additional don’t hesitate to ask and hopefully we can either make this an annual event of bi-annual event the decision is yours, either way I look forward to working with all of you again on future drive.



Jeanna Savage / Account Executive American Red Cross

32% of the donors were LFC members or family.

Great effort coordinated by Ass't Chief Leonard.




Monday, July 14, 2014  Firefighter/EMT Jack Welsh also has a gardening business. He donates many of the culled or leftovers he comes across. Station34 looking good this year with some dramatic Canna Lilies.



Woodland Dr house fire

Friday, June 20, 2014 2:40 PM Some of the best pictures from Wednesday's fire were taken by the Main Line Time's Pete Bannan (a former Llanerch Firefighter & Fire Officer). This link gets you to those pictures and shows the effort needed when fighting a fire in such heat. All the Haverford Fire Companies were needed, plus Springfield Fire Company. Collingdale, Newtown Square and Highland Park, plus Marple EMS helped cover the town while we were all on scene.There were many tired firefighters, but none injured.
